"... gem of an album ... arguably Chilton's creative peak ... delivers a heady mix that is realized fully on the classic power-pop ballad September Gurls, which helped define alt-rock in the 80s and 90s."
- The Absolute Sound

"... proves they were no mere flash in the pantheon of one-shot burned-out artists ... features plenty of shimmering pop delights ... sometimes they sound like The Byrds, sometimes like the early Who, but usually like their own indescribable selves ... one of the most high-spirited, thoroughly enjoyable recent releases."
- Rolling Stone

The second album from influential American band Big Star, released in 1974, includes the band's best known song, September Gurls, called a "power pop classic" by Rolling Stone with its mesmerizing chorus and ringing guitar break. The song was exposed to a new generation when The Bangles recorded it in the mid-1980s; it also influenced the spelling of Katy Perry's 2010 single California Gurls, turning it into a tribute of sorts to Big Star.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
